of the forces for freedom and equality in america's second civil war. racism and segregation and depression of african-americans did not end with the end of the first civil war in 1865 and the passage of the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments. in the decades that followed, segregation, and the separation of races was enforced by law and by practice. slowly over the alt -- long years after the civil war, the inconsistencies of these policies, with the sacrifices made in the civil war, and the clear mandate in our declaration of independence that all men are created equal, for america to look into a mirror to see that the image of america that was in that mirror did not reflect the america we wanted, did not live up to the dreams our founding fathers had. we needed another civil war. this time not a violent one on the battlefield of virginia, but a war of ideas and of values, a war of protest to shatter that mirror, to shatter that image and create a new reflection of our hopes for a more perfect union. revolutions need leaders, leaders prepared as our founding fathers were, pledged their lives

as america's capital of antisemitism. jews were discriminated for everything, houses, public accommodation, even service clubs and automobile clubs. the rest of america was not much better. that is one of the reasons why a record of america with an administration beloved by jews raised only a feeble voice against the holocaust. that was then. now, of course, the twin cities are among the most enlightened communities of america, the place where they have had several jewish senators, several black officials, a flourishing of the community. it has transformed itself as america has been transformed. and i want to ask the question, what happened? how did that happen? we do not have time to get into many of the reasons but the most significant was the powerful tide of the civil rights revolution. it simply knocked down a closed society of my youth, knocking down the walls of the segregation and discrimination, opening the doors of equal opportunity to blacks and jews and all but -- and ultimately to women and to gaze and to people with disabilities. martin luther king jr. was not the first or on

wins tomorrow the president will be badly damaged and all political hell will break loose in america. obama care could crash and burn. americans simply do not like the corrupt bargains being struck in the healthcare arena. louisiana, nebraska, far left unions like the seiu have all been bribed, bribed into supporting obama care. that is not change we can believe in. that is not hope of any kind. that is backdoor politics of the worst kind and the folks know it. on the economic front i believe the president is doing the best he can. but unemployment remains tie and taxes in massachusetts very high. thickthings are not good there. adding it all up big time political disenchantment. i know the bay state, i worked there for years and democratic party is very strong. so mr. brown is not a lock but he is ahead in the polls. late today, a survey by insider advantage gave the republican a nine-point lead and some obama people in washington reportedly think it is all over. but it isn't. so please check out "the factor" tomorrow night. we will be live and have the latest on the race. let's bri

's campaign. what we have a first amendment to allow people the right to speak out in america. why do we need people of courage. sometimes people to sacrifice their lives, whether those in the midst of board today were those who sacrificed their lives in america through other causes. why sometimes those things are necessary for us to have the comforts of sitting here today and having this discussion. so when whitney talk about dr. king, it is important to reflect on all of those issues, why we needed it, why we needed such a sacrifice then and why we need even more sacrifices today. so i will leave with this proposition. all of us obviously have to adhere to it, but i especially challenge those of the next generation that are in the audience. the issue is, yes, we're honoring dr. king. but i think what is even more significant from where we stand today is to give proper honor. the proper honor to days to question what movement are you going to be a part of? what movement are you going to lead? we are beset in this country in this world with as many problems that existed then, and they need to
